Rescue cats Spitfire, TigerMoth & PiperCub from Woodland Nook Cat Rescue - Alfreton, needs homeHello, I'm Spitfire and I want to tell you a story. Once upon a time three very frightened kittens arrived in rescue. Some months passed with lots of TLC from the rescue people, and we are still nervous but we have grown in confidence, especially with people that we know well. We are seeking a patient home with adults or older kids who will let us settle at our own pace. We are very close (the rescue people think its charming!) and would like a home together with outdoor access. We have been told we are stunning in colour and markings. I'm the ginger one by the way! We are about 18 months old and have been neutered.

Rescue cat Caramel from 8 Lives Cat Rescue, Sheffield, needs a homeHello, my name is Caramel. I'm a pretty one year old tortie and white female cat. I came into the rescue with my beautiful kittens, and now I'm looking for a loving home of my own. I'm really friendly, and enjoy human company. I'm gentle and loving and should be fine in a home with sensible children. I haven't been introduced to other adult cats in the rescue so am unsure about living with other adult cats. However, whilst at the rescue I have taken on the care of 3 other kittens that are the same age as my own kittens, and have loved them just like they are my own kittens! I'd like access to a safe garden in my new home please, although initially I'll need to stay indoors. I've been spayed, vaccinated and microchipped and am up to date with my flea and worm treatment. Please get in touch for more information about me, you won't be disappointed!

Rescue cat Sally from Lina's Cat Rescue, Derby, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire needs a homeHi there, my name’s Sally and I’m a black and white, 18 month old girl looking for a home to call my own. I was a stray but was being looked after by somebody kind. I was heavily pregnant though and the lovely people at the rescue were called in to help me. I had 3 babies and was a brilliant Mum but now it’s my turn for a home of my own. I’m 18 months old, have been neutered, microchipped and vaccinated and am up to date with worming and flea treatments. I love humans and likee my face and chin being stroked and will even roll on my back for belly tickles! I enjoy my food and eat it with relish! I can also be a bit vocal at meal times - just so you know how hungry I am! I’d like a garden and am fine living with children. I may be best as the only pet though as I’m not sure about living with dogs or other cats. I’m a clean, very gentle and affectionate little girl - what’s not to love?!

Rescue cat Oscar, from Rolleston Rehoming Centre, Burton-Upon-Trent, needs a homeHi there, my name is Oscar. I am a neutered tabby male and as you can see, I am incredibly handsome. At 12 years old, you'd think I'd be slowing down, but I still love to explore and have adventures in the great outdoors - my perfect home would be one with plenty of space outside to roam; a rural setting would be just the ticket. I can be nervous and shy at first, and will need some time to come out of my shell; but when I do, you'll know about it! I love to chat and will happily talk to all and sundry when I'm pottering about in the garden. You'll know when I've properly settled in as I have a special way of asking for fuss or food; I've learned that a little nudge with my paw gets me a long way! I think I'd flourish in a quiet home free of other pets and young children; though perhaps a gentle older child would be alright with me. If you think I'd be a good match for you, then please get in touch! I can't wait to meet you.
OSCAR is at Blue Cross - Rolleston Rehoming Centre, Burton-Upon-Trent . Rehoming in Derbyshire, Staffordshire & West Midlands.

Rescue Cats Tash & Tiggy from Lina’s Cat Rescue, Derby needs a homeHello, we’re Tash and Tiggy! It might not surprise you to know that we’re sisters cos we’re both tabby and white and we’re both 9 years old. We’re both the friendliest, laid back pair of cats you could meet - of course, you’ll have to meet us to see for yourself if its true! We both love fuss and attention, one way in which we differ though is that I’m a lap cat but Tiggy prefers to sleep elsewhere but you can always tell where she is though cos she snores rather loudly! Shh don’t tell her I told you! We love playing with toys and will keep ourselves amused while you’re out. We’ve both been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and are up to date with flea and worm treatments. We can’t wait to meet you and hope you’ll find it in your hearts to give two lovely girls a loving home?

Rescue cat Smudge, at RSPCA - Macclesfield, South East Cheshire & Buxton, needs a new homeHello, my name is Smudge.  I'm a sweet and very handsome young chap of two years old, and I arrived in rescue from a large group of over twenty cats.  Due to this I haven't had much interaction with humans and am consequently very shy, though I'm fine with other friendly cats.  Given all the time, understanding and patience I need to gain confidence in a calm home I'll be able to show you what a lovely, affectionate little fellow I am - full of purrs and head butts!  I've been health checked, worm and flea treated, microchipped and neutered, and have started my vaccinations, so I'm ready to find my wonderful forever home.  Could you give me the love and gentle reassurance that will help me to thrive?  Please get in touch.
SMUDGE is at RSPCA - Macclesfield, South East Cheshire & Buxton. Rehoming in Cheshire & Derbyshire.
